Tucson Palo Verde
8″ x 10″ linen panel
Painted on location at the El Conquistador Hilton Hotel during the Plein Air Convention 2016. We all went painting in the afternoon behind the hotel. Everyone was painting the rock mountains, I had to be different and paint the palo verde. It was the yellow sky backlight that hooked me. I’ve seen plenty of rocks in Arizona and it didn’t pique my interest as much as other artists. Next time I’m down here, I will have to paint the rocks.
